Psalms

A study of the Psalms based upon the Liturgy of the Hours including canticles from outside the Book of Psalms


Psalm 48: God Delivers Zion

July 19, 2018

This study examined Psalm 48 as a response to God's miraculous deliverance of Jerusalem from the overwhelmingly superior Assyrian army.  We spent some time addressing how God's perspective on physical life and death may be different from ours as well as the different understandings of love and hate between Hebrew and Christian thought.  We touch briefly upon the geography of Jerusalem and some of the common metaphors used in this psalm.


Psalm 63: Your Love Is Better Than Life - Part 2

October 25, 2018

This study explores Psalm 63 including its possible context of Absalom's rebellion against David.  We considered how we can still see God's power and glory in His sanctuary today.  We dwelt upon what it means to value God's love even more than life itself.  We spoke of spiritual delights and intimacy with God and challenged ourselves to see how close we are to Him gauged against this psalm.
